PE & Sport Premium 18-19

Sports Premium at Chaucer Primary School


Primary School’s Sport Funding

The DfE have confirmed that the investment will remain doubled at £320 million for 2018/19. This funding is being jointly provided by the Departments for Education, Health and Culture, Media and Sport, and will see money going directly to primary school head teachers to spend on improving the quality of sport and PE for all their children. The sport funding can only be spent on sport and PE provision in schools.

The school has used ongoing monitoring and evaluation of PE to establish strengths and areas for development and these have been used to establish an action plan for PE. The Youth Sport Trust self-review audit has been used to identify strengths and areas for development.
